The sound that broke the wall of Jericho . . .

By Kirsten Nour Namskau

Since I’m very much into alternative healing, I accepted an invitation from a friend of mine to attend a 2 hours information lecture about sound-healing, held by Dan Furst.
Dan Furst is a sacred musician and sound therapist and founder of the Sacred Sound group of Hawaii, Los Angeles and Sedona, Arizona, Japan and Egypt.
In his sessions of healing he’s using Quartz crystal bowl, singing bowls, tuning forks, bells, chimes and an Australian didjeridoo.

He works after the principal of that each charka and organ works after a certain rhythm and frequency of sound-wave. Illness, diseases, stress, mood-changes etc. appear if the organs are in disharmony or works on wrong sound-wave.
He relate to Pythagoras’ idea of finding the “missing tone.”

During the session, I had the opportunity to voluntary myself for a trail session of healing.
It’s a lot going wrong in my body, since I have been offer for torture earlier in life and organs is permanently damaged.
The last 5 years, I have worked inside health-care myself and also give massage to people. My hands and my arms are therefore my working-tool number one and my bead-feeder.
It’s with fear I recently notice that my right hand, arm and shoulder aches more and more as if I have got arthritis or rheumatism.

So, in this session, which took about 10 minutes, I was told to lay down on a mat on the floor. It was 12 people I the session and all of them were to pick an instrument and sit around me.
Dan had showed us how to use each instrument.
As I was laying on the floor, they started to play. In the beginning it felt like only a lot of sounds.
After a minute, it felt as if I could hear only one sound. (As if all the instruments was tuned into one instrument.)
Then Dan took the Didjeridoo, which is a long wooden instrument looking like a giant flute.
He went to my feet and started to blow. A deep sound attended the room.
After some time I could feel he sound-wave of the Didjeridoo at my feet.
Slowly the waves crept up my right leg. It was a strange feeling, but you have the same feeling if you are in a disco, you can feel the beet of the music in your body.
The difference was that this wave was more like waves from the sea, if you lay at the beach with your feet in the water.

I felt the waves reach my hip and started to fill my body. When it reached my heart-area, it felt as if my heart stopped for a fraction of a second and I instantly made a gasp which brought tears to my eyes.
Dan went behind my head and started to play on a crystal bowl. This felt then, as if the sound and waves cleared my head totally for all thoughts and again I could feel the waves go down my head to the heart area. There it met the other waves from the Didjeridoo and it felt as if my heart opened up and all the waves got released through the heart and out in the air.

As I laid there, it was as if I could see my own aura in which it started flew small black splits out from the aura and disappear in the air.

When it was over, I felt a little dizzy, but OK. I went to the coffee-shop with some friends and the day continued as usually.

The next day . . . I’m telling you . . . the pain was gone, my hand and arm more movable and more so . . .
During the night, I could turn in the bed without pain in my back. (My back has been broken, so it’s a chapter by itself.)
Still, 8 months later it’s an improving in the whole system of my body, hand and arm. Still even my back is without pain.

What is your opinion about alternative healing? Do you have any experiences?

When your head is right, it helps make your body right. Mental stress's is what often makes the body hurt.

Maybe the best way to avoid a lot of that stress is to avoid most humans.

Hammer said...

Amazing. I feel with all the stress and poisons that have gone into my body, that I should seriously consider trying it.

I'm sincerely glad you are feeling better. Thank you for sharing the information with us.

I've been to some workshops and demonstrations where they used crystal bowls, singing bowls, bell, chimes, drums, and such.

That music drives me nuts. To pick up my spirits I need some good country western or rock and roll.

But to each his own hey?

Whatever number you make I can make it smaller by adding a ~ 0 ~ in front

Not unless you put a decimal point in front of it. :-)

07 is still just seven.

.07 is a different story.

I know, picky, picky. He,he, he.

The human body has a great capacity for healing itself. I think it just takes some prodding for the healing to start - if you believe the sounds are going to help that is enough to set things in motion.

The only thing a didgeridoo would heal me of is a love of music, I think.

BBC said...

I lie on the bed and let the cosmos heal me.

But not always the bed, sometimes other places.

BBC: Ohhh bbc, what can i do with you? You are a hopeless case :)

Hammer: You know, I think anything else than the poison the authorities call medicine, is better. If it had to do with my conviction, well then ...let the music be my medicine.
I have a detox diet i use 3 days a month. It flushes out all poison and polution. It's amazing effects.
I can post it in a blog, if it is of interest.

Phosegen kid: I think you are very right in what you are saying.
The point is to come in a situation where your allembracing mind consentrate about healing yourself.
If that means to go for a session of a kind of music where it is impossible to take a line of thoughts in daily trivials, but instead enforce you to concentrate on your health for a moment. Well then, that is what triggered the process of healing.
It like as well could be yoga, meditation, chewing herbs or go for a long walk.

BBC said...

Because I'm not like you does not mean I'm a hopeless case. I trust the cosmos to heal me a lot more than I do the monkeys screwing around with their beliefs. If that works for me there is no reason I shouldn't go with it.

I don't depend on it entirely though, doctors are needed for some things.

All the people that I've seen messing around with alternative things still end up at a doctor when they have real problems. Besides, my way is an alternative way, try it some time being as you say you are into nature. :-)

Some things require operations to fix,, period. Haven't you ever heard that God is a doctor? If you get a good one that is, one that cares more about you than money.
